Acer had unveiled the Liquid Z2 and Liquid E1 nearly a week before MWC kicked off. The Liquid Z2 is extremely tiny and is aimed squarely at budget conscious buyers.
The handset sports a tiny 3.5-inch HVGA (320*480) display, and is powered by a single core 1GHz MediaTek processor and 512MB of RAM. Surprisingly, the Z2 is running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean but with such sub-par specs, don’t expect butter smooth performance from the Z2. Other specs of the Z2 include a 3MP camera at its back and a dual-SIM card slot for simultaneous support for two GSM networks.

The Liquid E1 is aimed at the mid-range market and packs a 4.5-inch qHD (960*540) IPS LCD display. The E1 also runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered by a much beefier 1GHz dual-core MTK processor and sports 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. All the other usual connectivity features like Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS are also present. In the front of the Liquid E1 is a VGA camera, while the back is adored by a 5MP snapper capable of recording videos in 720p resolution.
